HI

You have mistaken name , use code below :

The name used in the configuration file is : "InitialPrices.Properties.Settings"
You had : "InitialPrices.Properties.Settings.ConnectionString"
  Database db = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["InitialPrices.Properties.Settings"].ConnectionString);

HI

I want to check if there is a problem with the dots in the name , can you change the name to simply "A" in the config file and also the code to:
Database db = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["A"].ConnectionString);

Try

DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase("InitialPrices.Properties.Settings.ConnectionString")

You have to pass the name of the connection string and not the connection string itself.

Also, your connection string is missing initial catalog attribute, which will define the database that it has to point to
